Sydenham to Bankstown 2021/2022 upgrade
Sydenham to Bankstown 2021/2022 upgrade

The NSW Government is delivering Sydney Metro, Australia’s biggest public transport project extending from Sydney’s north west, under Sydney Harbour through new underground city stations and beyond to Bankstown in Sydney’s south west.

The next stage of major work to upgrade the T3 Bankstown Line to metro standards will take place over the December/January New Year period, when there are fewer customers on the rail network.

The T3 Bankstown Line between Bankstown and Sydenham will be closed from Sunday 26 December 2021 to Sunday 9 January 2022 for these important upgrade works.

Rail replacement bus services will be provided during this period. A number of bus services will transport customers to select stations on the T8 Airport and South Line during this time.

Consultation with the local community is now open on proposed temporary parking changes to accommodate the additional bus services and keep our customers moving during the upgrade works.

View the notifications and maps below for information about the temporary parking changes around your station:

Transport for NSW will consider any feedback received, and work with the relevant Councils on the changes to temporary parking.

Final transport plans that will keep customers moving during the upgrade will be shared with the community well in advance to give people plenty of time to plan ahead.

Residents and businesses can provide their feedback on the proposed kerbside changes via email at
